    Hello everyone as mentioned in my profile intro, I need some help in knowing how to book train tickets. Its the first time I would be making a train booking, and these days with fraud websites and all I thought it would be safe to ask on the forum for the correct procedure and details about booking train tickets.

    Our journey would be from Bangalore to Bidar.
